Jeremy & Chandler Part 6: The Honeymoon

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! Last year on this day, we were honeymooning in Mexico. So to celebrate…a tribute to the honeymoon.

After months of wedding planning and the most wonderful and exhausting day of your life comes to an end, God’s gift to couples is this lovely thing called a honeymoon.

Whether it’s spent in the mountains, by the beach, in Europe, at Disney World, or simply a stay-cation at home, honeymoon week has been statistically proven to be one of the best weeks of all time for couples around the globe.

You can finally just be married. No fuss. No answering questions. Just two people.

It was a week of firsts for Jeremy and me. First sleepover…and all stuff that goes along with that. First vacation together. First time out of the country together. First all-inclusive resort for either of us. First time waking up next to each other. First time to truly be alone for more than a few hours–even in 3.5 years of dating. Even if we had been at home for a week, it would have been great, but the fact that we got to go to a romantic resort in Mexico made it even better.

We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach in the Riviera Maya. We loved our room…

We went cave snorkeling, zip lining, and rappelling.

And we saw the Mayan ruins at Tulum. As a lover of history, this was definitely a highlight for me.

We played tennis every day. And went sea kayaking. And tried our arms at archery.

And we lounged by the beach while friendly waiters brought us food and drinks.

We bravely fought off giant-sized iguanas.

We got dressed up and ate completely delicious four course dinners every night. The bill was already paid for, so we really felt like we were getting the special treatment when we were never presented with a check.

Then we came back to our room and watched movies and ordered ice cream room service. Every night.

I remember lounging in the pool one night after dinner and saying to Jeremy, “This really is magical.” I meant it. The perfect balance of play and relaxation. And we only argued once at which point I huffed off to the balcony and shed a few self indulgent and sulky tears because of something completely ridiculous. Typical. But then we made up and got back to being blissful. Real talk.

Here’s to many more lovely trips to come in the future. Vacations together are the

We would not have had such a great honeymoon without an amazing travel agent who made the planning so simple. She took great care of us! Be sure to check out Carlie Finch at 2 Travel Anywhere, LLC!
